Celebrate Our June Series of the Month with Alice Through the Looking Glass!

All of us at Cosimo are celebrating the release of Alice Through the Looking Glass this June by reading Lewis Carroll's classic books!

In 1865, English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), aka Lewis Carroll, wrote a fantastical adventure story for the young daughters of a friend. The adventures of Alice-named for one of the little girls to whom the book was dedicated-who journeys down a rabbit hole and into a whimsical underworld realm instantly struck a chord with the British public, and then with readers around the world.

Here, in one volume, you'll find both Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and the 1872 sequel, Through the Looking-Glass. Together, this is a masterwork of playful prose in which the author has invented some of the most memorable characters in literature: the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter and the Red Queen.

Alice Through the Looking Glass is produced by Tim Burton and is loosely based on the Lewis Carroll classic. The film stars Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Rhys Ifans, Matt Lucas, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen, and is the sequel to the 2010 film Alice in Wonderland.

Cosimo is proud to offer Alice's Adventures in Wonderland as well as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass in both hardcover and paperback. These titles are all unabridged replica editions which feature the original illustrations by English artist Sir John Tenniel.

Cosimo also offers a facsimile of the original 1864 Author's Manuscript, Alice's Adventures Under Ground. This edition of Alice's Adventures under Ground is the second recorded version of Alice's tales, and a treasure for collectors and Alice in Wonderland fans.
